About Rara Avis

Help them to fly...
Teach them to teach others to fly
and fill the sky…

It is our mission to identify and raise the rare birds that will uplift our nation. We have a long and solid history of gathering, allocating and monitoring resources in order to build the minds, bodies and hearts that will fly our future. We strive to enable and empower the fledgling leaders, poets, teachers, business minds, and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. At the Rara Avis Foundation, we strongly believe that education should not be about teaching learners in order to make money, but instead we strive to make money in order to provide a consistent learning platform.
